Parallax of Darkness by Drew Barnett is an interesting read in the tradition of Christian Jacq, a narrative that is beautifully researched and that explores the tenets of Egyptian history and core beliefs. Tim Adams and Evelyn Davidson are archaeologists exploring the hidden gems of ancient Egypt when two tablets discovered in the depths of the Great Pyramid at Giza change everything. This discovery could alter the course of history and even more. The tablets may lead to secrets of governments and religions, but there is much more to them than meets the eye. To unravel the mystery, they have to travel back in time to when religion and law were one and when destiny was sanctioned by this. In the heart of their quest is an even deeper question: man’s ultimate purpose. Tim and Evelyn may finally get the key to remaking history, but they might also end up endangering their lives in ways they never could have imagined.
Drew Barnett has done a great job in researching this novel. Parallax of Darkness features compelling characters and readers will enjoy the sense of curiosity demonstrated by the key characters in the story. They are elaborately developed and the story moves in directions that readers won’t expect. One of the things that caught my attention and that had me mesmerized is the way the author explores elements of the setting, unveiling wonderful images of ancient Egypt and exploring a world that sounds like a legend to contemporary readers. This book transports readers to ancient times and confronts them with powerful questions about life, faith, and destiny. Parallax of Darkness is an interesting read, exciting and filled with adventure.
